We are honored to host our inaugural event in NYC at The Frick
Collection on the topic of Preventing Looting: What Curators and All
Museum Staff Can Do, which is presented by AAMC Foundation & the US
committee of the International Council of Museums (ICOMUS).
This June will be the first of the Association of Art Museum Curator
Foundation’s regional programming, In-Conversation series, which
collaborates with AAMC leadership, and prominent voices within local
communities for dialogues on pressing issues within the curatorial
profession, museum network, and broader visual arts world. Through
hosting regional programming AAMC & AAMC Foundation will further our
initiatives of advocacy and diversity, connect members in regional
areas, and support our overall mission.
